This easy-to-read volume may be considered as a safety handbook for supervisors in chemical manufacturing plants or laboratories, but it may also be read with interest and profit by chemical plant employees or laboratory technicians. The author has spent much time as a safety specialist for various chemical firms and government departments, and this experience is reflected in the thorough and practical way in which he discusses the problem of safety. The volume is divided into short chapters, most of them dealing with different aspects of safety involved in the manufacture, handling, and storage of chemicals. Because of the practical answers it gives to most of the problems that are likely to be encountered, this book should be read by all those who supervise or plan to supervise in the manufacture or use of chemicals.
